    My h2s is knackered. Think the USB ports are goosed as I cannot record any more. Looking for a new device ideally with internal HDD that will allow me to pause/record and watch another channel. I find the firestick is a lot better in terms of channels not stuttering etc but I like a proper STB as the firestick still has problems.

    I’ve been using iPab build so would prefer a compatible device and want to know what’s out there that’s pretty high performance. If there’s something good that doesn’t run iPab I’ll definitely consider it if someone has good first hand experience.

    Have you had a look at the Octagon SF8008?

    The Formuler Z7+ is nice with a built-in mag style app SD/USB for recording plus the benefits of Android for Kodi and the like.

    Yes of course you do, unfortunately they don't come with the box.

    Zgemma h7s is a good box but I would swap from Ipab and try stock Open Atv 6.2(or Wooshbuild Infinity) with suls plugin as it runs much better and install service app and use ext3 player and it will run much smoother. For suls plugin you would need your epg url and your m3u url from your supplier. You also have the benefit of Satellite as I presume you have a dish as you had a H2s and you have the e2i player for movies and tv shows which works very well.

    I didn't rate ipab as a image myself after using it for nearly year on the recommendation of my then iptv provider, I went back to wooshbuild using Xtream Editor and the settings using the serviceapp and must say the difference was huge before parting with the trusty Zgemma.

    Used ipab for over a year on the recommendation of my previous provider and was not a fan wooshbuild is a lot smoother all round.
